Happy Saturday! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’m back today to review Chamilia’s Holiday 2016 Collection.
First of all, there are TOO many charms that I like from this collection. As you would expect, this collection is primarily focused on Christmas-themed charms, but Chamilia has expanded the In the Kitsch line too. As someone who loves to cook and bake, I’m so happy to see them expand In the Kitsch. The charms from this line are very 1960’s inspired which I’m a total sucker for.
I predicted that the Cookie Cutter charm will be very popular and many of my Instagram followers have proven that to be correct. It’s very affordable and extremely cute! To my surprise, I also really like the heavily-enameled Key Lime Pie even though I must admit I think it looks more like strawberry shortcake than key lime pie.
As a Canadian who lives near the Canadian Rockies, the Moose charm appealed to me instantly. At $35, it’s a fairly priced silver charm that features a little bit of enamel to highlight its facial features.
I’m not a skier or snowboarder, but I think the Skis charm will be popular for those who enjoy the sport. The Sled charm brings back happy childhood memories for me so I loved that one instantly. As with most holiday releases, there are some of the more traditional Christmas charms such as St. Nicholas, Jolly Elf, Candy Cane, Mr. Snowman, etc. Anything two-tone (silver and gold) always catches my eye, so Gilded Gifts is definitely one of my favorites from this release.
There are a few beautifully packaged gift sets as well. Perhaps the most notable one is the ‘Night Before Christmas’ Gift Set which consists of nine charms, two locks, and a bracelet – all of which are only available in the set.
In addition to the holiday jewelry, there will be a couple of promotions — one for Black Friday and another for December. I will provide more details in future posts.
To conclude, I would say that I’m most excited about the In the Kitsch charms from this release. I have a small collection of Christmas-themed charms from previous years so I’m excited about adding more to my holiday collection as well.
